Miniaturized Quantitative PCR in 1536-Well Plate Format Using the Echo® Liquid Handler
25 Oct 2010
This study utilized the Echo 555 liquid handler to perform miniaturized qPCR with zero cross-contamination, high precision and high accuracy. The Echo 555 liquid handler successfully transfers nanoliter quantities of qPCR reagents from a 384-well plate into a 1536-well qPCR plate with zero cross-contamination. The technology also enables the user to save on tips and extra washing steps by utilizing the tipless nature of acoustic dispensing.
